While plastic bottles are one of the greatest polluters of our planet, people have come up with interesting and innovative ways to upcycle these otherwise harmful products. Plastic bottles have been broken down and used to make rubber tires, shoes, as well as other plastics. Now, scientists have discovered a way to turn plastic bottles into vanilla flavoring. Amazing, right? We think so! This discovery is still in its early stages, but at the microscopic level, the idea is looking very promising. The scientists behind this research are hoping to prove that even the second-most harmful polluter of oceans can be turned into something useful.
